Newcomers to the Adirondacks! Four of them, and Jay was the perfect intro.

Wanting to give newcomers Trevor, Rae, Claire and Tanya a scenic but relatively easy ADK intro, I chose Jay Mountain: not too busy, super scenic, non-torn up trail, lots of terrain variety - I could go on for a while. We had a pretty decent weather day, sun and clouds - but a bit hazy and rather windy. The rainy spring/summer of 2017 meant that even parts of the normally dry Jay Mountain trail were muddy, which was quite a surprise. We turned around at one of the more prominent of the eastern sub-summits, since the true summit is a a bit tedious to get to and doesn't offer any better views.
